Jean: Thanks very much for your interesting e-mails regarding the Costello / Burnett etc. families. I've added them to http://www.bytown.net/jcostell.htm and I've also fixed up your e-mail link on that page (I had an error there). It's interesting. There was a family named NUTTERVILLE in this neighbourhood around 1840 who may be connected to your folks. There are also (I think) some references to them and to the O'Leary's and Kelly's at St. Michaels Church just a little to the north of here. The Burnett farm is one of the last to survive here. It's still in operation. Do you have a picture of it? If not, I could take one from the road and e-mail it to you. A large plaza (Walmart, etc.) is now being built in the neighbourhood - it may be on one of the old Tierney farms. Thanks again! ... Al Lewis
Hi Al, Yes, I would surely like to have a picture of the Burnett farm! I regret 'progress' when it destroys part of our heritage. As for the Nutterville family, can you tell me where Smith Falls is located? (Smiths Falls is located about 40 miles south-west of Ottawa. It's a settlement which sprang up when the Rideau Canal was being built and there are many Irish descendants living there ... Al). The 1870 Iowa census says all of John and Bridget Nutterville's children were born in Canada. As for Bridget's surname, I have found it spelled BRADY and another place says Bradley. Maybe someone can help. Thanks for your wonderful site! Jean in Iowa
August 28, 2001 Jean: I'm setting up a new page here for the Nutterville family. It includes the material which you sent me yesterday. Later today I'll add the stuff which I have. ... Al

January 4, 2003: Hi Al Thanks for the cheers. At least the Leafs are getting paid, he he he he. Yes, Mick [ aka Michael William Kennedy ] son of William Kennedy and Elizabeth Carroll. I must ask aunt Rita if she remembers the Burnetts. I have noticed a slow decline in her memory these days. By the way Lorne and Al, I have tracked down one of the sons of Mick and his second wife Theresa McGrath. Michael Kennedy has brothers Art in Jockvale and Leo in Montreal. Michael lives in Manotick, I not only phoned but sent his son Michael paperwork but they are not interested! The Celtic Committee cashed my cheque. I hope they are for real. Lorne, feel free to contact me. No Problem! Gee, I sounded like Mel Lastman just then. Take care guys Taylor
